How are blood drops at different heights alike?
Similarly, it is asked, how do large volume and dripped volume blood patterns compare?
Both pattern have a darker and lighter portion, thus showing where the initial impact of the blood was. Both splatters have satellites, however there are bigger sizes and a greater quantity of satellites with the large volume pattern.
Beside above, what are the six types of blood spatter patterns? Types of Stains
- Gunshot spatter - includes both forward spatter from the exit wound and back spatter from the entrance wound.
- Cast-off - results when an object swung in an arc flings blood onto nearby surfaces.
- Arterial spray - refers to the spurt of blood released when a major artery is severed.
Similarly one may ask, how does height relate to blood droplet characteristics?
The height from which the blood falls will affect the size of the stain, with greater heights tending to result in larger bloodstains. This type of bloodstain is the result of a forceful impact between an object and wet blood, causing the blood to break into smaller droplets.
What are the 4 types of passive bloodstains?
- Passive. a. formed from the force of gravity acting alone. b. subdivided (drops, drip patterns, pools, clots) c. oozing or gushes from the body, dripping finger or arm, drops from a knife.
- Transfer. a. wet bloody surface comes in contact with a secondary surface. b. wipe, smudge, swipe or smear. c.
- Projected blood spatter.
